Debunking The Republican Liars – ‘Republicans Who Are Attacking Obama For Missing IRS Emails Caught In a Web of Hypocrisy’
‘On the federal level emails get lost regularly because most government computer systems are ancient’.
‘For example, the system that the IRS is using is from the 1990s. As CREW Executive Director Melanie Sloan put it, “The loss of Ms. Lerner’s emails is just another example of deficient government record keeping. Emails by former Justice Department official and author of the ‘torture’ memos John Yoo disappeared, SEC records regarding the Madoff investigation vanished, and millions of emails from the George W. Bush White House were lost’.
‘Where was the outrage in those cases’?
‘This issue is bigger than any single government component.”
‘Republicans want to get outraged over an email loss that has no connection to President Obama, but don’t want to discuss the behavior of Bush, Cheney, Romney, Palin, and Walker’.
George W. Bush and Dick Cheney – ‘In order to avoid, public accountability the Bush administration used a private email network on RNC servers’.
‘The Bush administration also lost 22 million emails’.
‘They just so happened to lose the emails from the architects of Bush’s torture policy’.
‘Within those 22 million lost emails were five million emails that were lost relating to the 2007 firing of eight U.S. Attorneys’.
‘The Bush administration denied for years that any emails were lost, but as part of settling a lawsuit, eventually admitted that twenty-two million emails had been lost’.
Mitt Romney – ‘According to The Boston Globe, “Just before Mitt Romney left the Massachusetts governor’s office and first ran for president, 11 of his top aides purchased their state-issued computer hard drives, and the Romney administration’s e-mails were all wiped from a server, according to interviews and records obtained by the Globe’.
‘Romney administration officials had the remaining computers in the governor’s office replaced just before Governor Deval Patrick’s staff showed up to take power in January 2007, according to Mark Reilly, Patrick’s chief legal counsel’.
‘As a result, Patrick’s office, which has been bombarded with inquiries for records from the Romney era, has no electronic record of any Romney administration e-mails, Reilly said.”
‘This meant that the emails from Romney’s entire time in office (2002-2006) were deleted’.
Scott Walker – ‘Much like the Bush administration, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker used a secret email system to keep his correspondence hidden from the public when he was Milwaukee County executive, “Thousands of documents unsealed Wednesday link Gov. Scott Walker to a secret email system used in his office that would avoid public scrutiny when he was Milwaukee County executive.”
